(Southern Living: Southern Food For Any Occasion Life Serves Up)
1 (8-ounce) French baguette
1/4 cup Hot Mustard Sauce (recipe follows)
6 ounces thinly sliced deli smoked turkey
4 ounces Brie cheese, thinly sliced
1 cup loosely packed arugula
1/2 cup thinly sliced Granny Smith Apple(from 1 medium apple)
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Cut the baguette in half lengthwise. Place both halves on a baking sheet. Spread 2 tablespoons of the Hot Mustard Sauce on the bottom half of the baguette; top with the turkey and Brie. Bake in the preheated oven until the Brie melts and the baguette halves are lightly toasted about 5 minutes. Remove from the oven; top the Brie with the arugula and apple slices; sprinkle with the salt and pepper. Spread the remaining 2 tablespoons of Hot Mustard Sauce on the cut side of the top half of the baguette, and place on the apple slices. Cut into 4 pieces. The recipe serves 4.
Hot Mustard Sauce
1 cup tarragon vinegar
1/2 cup dry mustard (such as Colman’s)
1 cup granulated sugar
3 large eggs
Combine vinegar and dry mustard in a small bowl; cover and let stand at room temperature 8 hours or overnight.
Whisk together the sugar and eggs in the top of a double boiler until well blended; whisk in mustard mixture. Cook, whisking constantly, over gently simmering water until mixture coats the back of a spoon, 6 to 7 minutes. Cool completely, about 2 hours. Refrigerate sauce in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks. The recipe makes 2 cups.
This is what we call a tasty and tantalizing Summer sandwich! The combination of melted Brie, along with the crisp tartness of Granny Smith Apples layered on top of our favorite turkey, is simply delicious! Brie, otherwise known as the “Queen of Cheeses”, is full of buttery flavor and creamy texture. Our French baguette bread and its crispy crust bring a fancy flair to our sandwich. We then top with a pile of fresh arugula, which is full of spice and flavor, plus it adds beautiful color. For the final touch, we add the homemade hot mustard, a versatile condiment that tastes so good on any sandwich it’s spread on!
